Memory Card Reader

Does anyone know where I can get a Win 98 Driver for a Packard Bell Hi Speed USB 2.0 8 in 1 Digital Media Reader? Have searched Packard Bell Site and Driver with no luck. Works fine on my Win XP machine but I want to use it on my other machine for transfering files

Hi Pan Man. It is quite probable that you won't be able to find Windows 98 drivers for this device. This is quite often the case these days. You will probably find it easier to buy a USP flash drive for transferring files. These are quite rewasonably priced these days, just make sure you chooses one with Windows 98 (or whatever versoin you have) support. If you get a Lexar drive click here, you can download Windows 98 drivers from the Lexar site click here.

Obvious question has to be asked, does the 98 have USB2?

I think you will find the answer is in the question!
Multi card readers ie. 7 in 1 or above are usually connected to the M/B via a USB Header. There is a cable supplied for this job in the box. The O/S being Win98 should have USB compatability. If not upgrade to Win98SE it should do the job.
After connection to the USB Header the Card Reader will show in My Computer as Individual Mass Storage
(E) (F) (G) (H) etc.
This Multi-Reader is Compatable with USB1.1 and USB 2

Hope this helps

Sorry, should have been a little more specific. The Pc does have USB Ports via a PCI card and I am using Win 98 SE. When I connect the reader to the PC it finds it as "USBHS ORCA 8 in 1 Reader" and then asks for the driver disc which I don't have.
